Strength:

Small

Weakness:

Cap leaks, poor construction

I got this as a present and it's terrible, the cap leaks so it must be upright at all times. After about 20 rides the mouth piece broke and leaks. I'll be getting a camelback next time.

Strength:

anti-bacterial bladder, bite valve works well, holds helmet/other stuff in bungee system, secure buckles work well

Weakness:

the fill opening is in a bad spot. makes it hard to fill and empty. the storage compartment is almost useless. can't fit much at all.

the fill opening is annoying. you can never get this thing all the way empty unless you stick a towel in there to soak up all the water. if you try to fill it while it's in the bag you can get water everywhere, soaking the bag before you even go out for a ride. the worst part it the storage compartment. it's just so small and does not stretch. whatever the advertised ci they claim is not true. you can't fill it at all. other than that it does a good job of holding and delivering the water during the ride. just make sure the cap is on tight!

Strength:

Water tastes like water. Not llike CB's bladder which taste like plastic. No leak. Love the magnetic clip for the mouthpiece. Light, comfortable (fits my back), cool. Very easy to remove bladder and easy to refill, unlike CB's.

Weakness:

Not much storage room, but I like to carry minimul stuff anyway. Spare tube, CO2, levers, wrench set (compact), chain tool and spare master link. With all that, fitting a smart phone is tough. But if you have a small flip phone or similar, it has a pouch on the shoulder rest for it.

Best pack owned by far. Will buy again if anything ever happens to this one.

Strength:

Looks great, quality construction, light weight, comfortable to wear, easy to fill, easy to load reservoir into pack (not so with many hydration systems), easy to clean, easy to use while riding, okay to use with Heed or similar drinks, detail features are nice (bite valve works well, gel pouch on front of left strap, lid lock, small zip pouch for keys, phone,etc.), great value at this price!

Weakness:

None yet.

Very pleased with every aspect of this system. It's my favorite of the 4 that I have due to style, features, and by far the easiest to fill, load, use, and clean.
